Welcome back to your weekly “Dream Dress for Less” where we feature gorgeous wedding gowns under $1,500. It takes some digging, but they do exist. Let us do the legwork so you can relax and enjoy one of the most wonderful times of your life. Take a look at this week’s find:
J.Crew is making waves right now with the debut of their new bridal collection as well as the big news that they now carry wedding gowns in the store. Brides, rejoice. You no longer have to wait for the gown to arrive in the mail to try it on–you can make an appointment at the NorthPark location to try on the sample gowns and make your decision from there. We peeked in the “brides only” area of the store last week and there’s a special fitting room dedicated to the brides and her wedding party. Yes, they have their line of popular bridesmaids dresses, too. To celebrate, we chose the Karlie ball gown as today’s Dream Dress for Less. The elegant princess dress is made of silk dupioni (which, according to J.Crew is “known for its unique lustre and subtly textured finish”). This simple silhouette is perfect for an accessory lover who wants to pile on layers of pearls or don a showstopping statement necklace. You can get creative with a fun veil or headpiece or add a pop of color with some bold shoes. Either way, you’ll feel like a princess bride. The dress is available for $1,150.
